I would think that in some part of this process it asked if you had PL/I. If
you do not have it, then there should be some way to let the product know not to
include PL/I modules.
The product structure for PL/I has changed from the previous PL/I version. Most
JCL and CLISTs that link-edit a PL/I application using the OS PL/I library must
be changed. These changes include:
The OS PL/I multitasking library PLITASK has been replaced by SIBMTASK,
which is required to have multitasking support. SIBMTASK must be concatenated
Note that Enterprise PL/I for z/OS does not currently support multitasking.
Language Environment continues to support PL/I multitasking for PL/I for MVS &
VM as well as previous, supported levels of the PL/I product.
The PLIBASE and SIBMBASE libraries have been replaced by:
SCEELKED, which contains resident routines that are linked with the
application and are used to resolve external references at link-edit time.
SIBMMATH, which contains the stubs for old OS PL/I V2R3 math library
routines. In link-edit steps, this library must precede SCEELKED if old math
results are desired in a particular executable program.
SIBMCALL, which is required to provide PLICALLA and PLICALLB
compatibility if PL/I for MVS & VM applications use OS PL/I PLICALLA or PLICALLB
as an entry point. SIBMCALL must be concatenated before SCEELKED.
SIBMCAL2, which is very similar to SIBMCALL, but is only used with
Enterprise PL/I for z/OS.
SCEELKED and SIBMCAL2 are the only libraries that apply for Enterprise PL/I
If it is looking for SIBMCALL then it is probably going to want the PLICALLA and
